This short scarf which buttons up to be worn as a cowl is made up of 500 little knitted ‘O’s or hugs. These are pretend cable stitches, worked without a cable needle. Knitted with a soft yarn and in beautiful colours, this is the ideal pattern for wrapping someone in hugs.

The scarf measures about 65 x 18 cm when laid flat and uses 60 g of yarn. Instructions are also included for designing your own Hugs scarf with other weights of yarn.

All my ravelry patterns are free to download but, if you enjoy them, please consider making a donation to the Children’s Liver Disease Foundation, a charity which funds research and supports the families of children with a liver disease.

Happy Knitting!
